Does Tasting Blood Break the Fast?

Question: Does tasting blood break the fast?
Dear questioner,
Thank you for your important question.
1. Tasting blood does not break the fast. Swallowing blood breaks the fast if (a) the blood reaches the throat and (b) the blood is greater or equal to the saliva it mixes with [Ibn ‘Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar].
2. Tasting the toast does not break the fast, as long as no toast was swallowed.
And Allah alone knows best.
